Arrived with our 5th wheel at 1:30pm to camp for the night before moving on. Glad we made reservations since the last of 45 sites was being taken while we waited to check in. The sites provide water/electric hookups, are clean, easy to maneuver in/out of & cost under $25 per nite. The beautiful museum depicting scenes of Stephen Foster's... More

This is a really good state park. The Museum is very good and there is a lot else going on with various activities through the year. The campground is very good with large spaces, well spaced. The bathhouses are very clean and completely functional. Near I-75 and will make a great trip break if you don't want to stay.

I've lived in Florida most of my life and had since now missed this gem. A visit to Stephen Foster Folk Culture Center States Park is a trip worth taking. I was there for the celebration of National Stephen Foster Day on January 11th. When the performance on the Stephen Foster Carillon was played I can honestly say I got... More

October 23, 2014 - Two years ago, we enjoyed visiting the Stephen Foster Folk Culture Center state Park's museum and carillon. It was such a wonderful experience, we decided to bring our British friends along this time. We arrived at the Park around 9am to first visit the museum. The museum has several dioramas which depect scenes associated with many... More

What a great way to spend the evening! Get there a little early to get a great parking spot. The lights were not the main attraction to me but the little village free popcorn and hot chocolate and making smores around the bonfire were great! It was interesting going all the way down the path to the blacksmith's shoppe and... More

Not only is this one of the most beautiful Florida State Parks (and we have been traveling them for 4 years now) when you are able to get a site during the month of December you are treated to the most spectacular Christmas lights! And, there is a Santa's village where you can meet and mingle with other visitors while... More

This is our second time camping here. In December the park is decorated for Christmas. They do a really great job with the lights. It is set up for all ages. The park is kept really clean. I was very impressed with the campground. The bathhouses are spotless.

This park is on the beautiful Suwannee river. Excellent campground. The carillon tower is awesome, as are the museum, craft village, and gift shop. Hiking and biking on miles of trails. Home of many events, including the annual Florida Folk Festival in May and the Festival of Lights with millions of lights in December. I go there often, am never... More

Very beautiful State Park. Camping opportunities from primitive to trailer and tent sites with electric and water to 2bed/1 bath cabins with ac and heat. Great place for hiking, biking, and walking. There are museums in the park highlighting the life of Steven Foster. Very informative and interesting! There is a little country store that offers coffee, snacks, and souvenirs.... More
